Don't Quit


When people pull you down, as they often will
When the battle you're fighting is all uphill
when the funds are low and the debts are high
When you're laughing, although you'd rather cry
Stop and take a deep breath, but don't you quit.

Although you've worked so hard just to get this far
You must steady your pace, just to say where you are
You'll need twice the effort to make your way
Tomorrow won't come until you've conquered today
And if you discover yourself slowing down a bit
Stop and rest if you must, but don't quit.


Always do the best that you can possibly do
Treasure true friends who are far and few
Never give up, whatever the burden you bear
Just one more step might get you there
Often the battle that is proceeding slow
Will conclude abruptly, when dealt another blow.

Succeed in believing that you will not fail
Use diligence and determination to set your sail
When the weather is stormy and the waters are rough
In the moment of peril the strong get tough
Whenever life presses you down a bit
Stand up and shout

'I Will Not Quit! '

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
